Large and giant middle to lower basilar trunk aneurysms treated by surgical and interventional neuroradiological methods. (1/730)

Treatment of large and giant aneurysms of the basilar artery remains difficult and controversial. Three large or giant aneurysms of the lower basilar artery were treated with a combination of surgical and interventional neuroradiological procedures. All patients underwent the balloon occlusion test with hypotensive challenge (blood pressure reduced to 70% of the control value). The third patient did not tolerate the test. In the first patient, both vertebral arteries were occluded through a craniotomy. In the second patient, both the aneurysm and the basilar artery were occluded by detached balloons. In the third patient, one vertebral artery was occluded by surgical clipping and the other by detached helical coils and fiber coils. In spite of anti-coagulation and anti-platelet therapy, postoperative thrombotic or embolic ischemia occurred in the second and third patients. Fibrinolytic therapy promptly corrected the ischemic symptoms, but the second patient developed hemorrhagic complications at the craniotomy area 2 hours later. At follow-up examination, the first patient had only 8th cranial nerve paresis, the second patient who had a hemorrhagic complication was bed-ridden, and the third patient had no deficit. Interventional occlusion requires a longer segment of the parent artery compared to surgical occlusion of the parent artery and might cause occlusion of the perforating arteries. However, selected use of various coils can occlude only a short segment of the parent artery. Thus, the postoperative management of thromboembolic ischemia after the occlusion of the parent artery is easier using the interventional technique.  (+info)

Post-traumatic pituitary apoplexy--two case reports. (2/730)

A 60-year-old female and a 66-year-old male presented with post-traumatic pituitary apoplexy associated with clinically asymptomatic pituitary macroadenoma manifesting as severe visual disturbance that had not developed immediately after the head injury. Skull radiography showed a unilateral linear occipital fracture. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed pituitary tumor with dumbbell-shaped suprasellar extension and fresh intratumoral hemorrhage. Transsphenoidal surgery was performed in the first patient, and the visual disturbance subsided. Decompressive craniectomy was performed in the second patient to treat brain contusion and part of the tumor was removed to decompress the optic nerves. The mechanism of post-traumatic pituitary apoplexy may occur as follows. The intrasellar part of the tumor is fixed by the bony structure forming the sella, and the suprasellar part is free to move, so a rotational force acting on the occipital region on one side will create a shearing strain between the intra- and suprasellar part of the tumor, resulting in pituitary apoplexy. Recovery of visual function, no matter how severely impaired, can be expected if an emergency operation is performed to decompress the optic nerves. Transsphenoidal surgery is the most advantageous procedure, as even partial removal of the tumor may be adequate to decompress the optic nerves in the acute stage. Staged transsphenoidal surgery is indicated to achieve total removal later.  (+info)

Transorbital-transpetrosal penetrating cerebellar injury--case report. (3/730)

A 4-year-old boy presented with a transorbital-transpetrosal penetrating head injury after a butter knife had penetrated the left orbit. The knife tip reached the posterior fossa after penetrating the petrous bone. Wide craniotomy and the pterional, subtemporal, and lateral suboccipital approaches were performed for safe removal of the object. The patient was discharged with left-sided blindness, complete left ophthalmoplegia, and hypesthesia of the left face. Early angiography is recommended to identify vascular injury which could result in fatal intracranial hemorrhage.  (+info)

A new technique of surface anatomy MR scanning of the brain: its application to scalp incision planning. (4/730)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Surface anatomy scanning (SAS) is an established technique for demonstrating the brain's surface. We describe our experience in applying SAS with superposition of MR venograms to preoperative scalp incision planning. METHODS: In 16 patients, scalp incision planning was done by placing a water-filled plastic tube at the intended incision site when we performed SAS using half-Fourier single-shot fast spin-echo sequences. Two-dimensional phase-contrast MR angiograms were obtained to demonstrate the cortical veins and then superimposed upon the SAS images. The added images were compared with surgical findings using a four-point grading scale (0 to 3, poor to excellent). RESULTS: In each case, neurosurgeons could easily reach the lesion. Surgical findings correlated well with MR angiogram-added SAS images, with an average score of 2.56. CONCLUSION: Our simple technique is a useful means of preoperatively determining brain surface anatomy and can be used to plan a scalp incision site.  (+info)

Spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid leakage detected by magnetic resonance cisternography--case report. (5/730)

A 49-year-old male with no history of head trauma suffered cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) discharge from the left nostril for one month. Coronal computed tomography (CT) showed lateral extension of the sphenoid sinus on both sides and CSF collection on the left side. CT cisternography could not identify the site of CSF leakage. Heavily T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (MR cisternography) in the coronal plane clearly delineated a fistulous tract through the sphenoid bone into the sphenoid sinus. Patch graft with muscle fragment completely relieved the CSF rhinorrhea. Postoperative three-dimensional CT showed the two bone defects identified during surgery. Small bony dehiscences in the sphenoid bone and lateral extension of the sphenoid sinus predisposed the present patient to CSF fistula formation. MR cisternography in the coronal and sagittal planes is superior to CT scanning or CT cisternography for detection of the site of active CSF leakage.  (+info)

Angiographically occult dural arteriovenous malformation in the anterior cranial fossa--case report. (6/730)

A 62-year-old male presented with a dural arteriovenous malformation located in anterior cranial fossa manifesting as acute right frontal intracerebral and subdural hematomas. Cerebral angiography showed only mass sign, but surgical exploration disclosed the dural arteriovenous malformation in the anterior cranial fossa. Anterior cranial fossa dural arteriovenous malformation should be considered if computed tomography reveals intracranial bleeding involving the frontal base, even if cerebral angiography does not demonstrate vascular anomalies.  (+info)

Lumbar spinal subdural hematoma following craniotomy--case report. (7/730)

A 52-year-old female complained of lumbago and weakness in the lower extremities 6 days after craniotomy for clipping an aneurysm. Neurological examination revealed symptoms consistent with lumbosacral cauda equina compression. The symptoms affecting the lower extremities spontaneously disappeared within 3 days. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging 10 days after the operation demonstrated a lumbar spinal subdural hematoma (SSH). She had no risk factor for bleeding at this site, the symptoms appeared after she began to walk, and MR imaging suggested the SSH was subacute. Therefore, the SSH was probably due to downward movement of blood from the cranial subdural space under the influence of gravity. SSH as a complication of cranial surgery is rare, but should be considered if a patient develops symptoms consistent with a lumbar SSH after craniotomy.  (+info)

Paraganglioma in the frontal skull base--case report. (8/730)

A 56-year-old female presented with a paraganglioma in the left anterior cranial fossa who manifesting as persistent headache. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a solid, enhanced tumor with a cystic component located medially. The tumor was attached to the left frontal base and the sphenoid ridge. Angiography demonstrated a hypervascular tumor fed mainly by the left middle meningeal artery at the left sphenoid ridge. The preoperative diagnosis was meningioma of the left frontal base. The tumor was totally resected via a left frontotemporal craniotomy. Histological examination revealed the characteristic cellular arrangement of paraganglioma generally designated as the "Zellbaren pattern" on light microscopy. Only 10 patients with supratentorial paraganglioma have been reported, seven located in the parasellar area. The origin of the present tumor may have been the paraganglionic cells which strayed along the middle meningeal artery at differentiation.  (+info)

We observed major improvements in quality and care efficiency during a stepwise transition of craniotomy care to multidisciplinary teams, protocols, and care pathways. To our knowledge, this is the first published report regarding the effect of this treatment model on craniotomy hospital care. During this period, the inpatient neurosurgery service at KP Sacramento Medical Center experienced substantial growth in case volume and complexity for patients who underwent craniotomy. The improved care quality and efficiency are key reasons the medical center was able to accommodate the increased craniotomy volume without expanding ICU or medical-surgical unit beds or creating a craniotomy case backlog. For example, 275 patients who underwent craniotomy required 2768 hospital days in 2008, compared with 475 patients who underwent craniotomy requiring 2599 hospital days in 2017. Once hospital bed capacity is outstripped, costs further escalate related to hospital construction costs or outsourcing of ...
Awake craniotomy is a neurosurgical technique and type of craniotomy that allows a surgeon to remove a brain tumor while the patient is awake to avoid brain damage. During the surgery, the neurosurgeon performs cortical mapping to identify vital areas, called the eloquent brain, that should not be disturbed while removing the tumor. One particular use for awake craniotomy is mapping the motor cortex to avoid causing movement deficits with the surgery. It is more effective than surgeries performed under general anesthesia in avoiding complications. Awake craniotomy can be used in a variety of brain tumors, including glioblastomas, gliomas, and brain metastases. It can also be used for epilepsy surgery to remove a larger amount of the section of tissue causing the seizures without damaging function, for deep brain stimulation placement, or for pallidotomy. Awake craniotomy has increased the scope of tumors that are considered resectable (treatable by surgery) and in general, reduces recovery ...
If youre reading this page, chances are youve recently heard that you need to have a craniotomy. Try not to worry. Although, yes, this is brain surgery, youre more likely to die from the underlying condition itself, such as a malignant tumour or subdural hematoma. Think of it this way: insomuch as being alive is safe, which it is not, having a craniotomy is safe. We fill our days with doing laundry, replacing our brake pads at the auto shop, or making a teeth-cleaning appointment with the dentist, in the expectation that everything will be fine. But it wont. There will be a day that kills you or someone you love. Such a perspective is actually quite comforting. Taken in that light, a craniotomy can be a relaxing experience, rather than one of abject terror.. WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CRANIOTOMY?. Nearly all operations begin with the creation of a bone flap so the doctor has an opening into your brain. This opening will be sealed shut at the end with wire or titanium plates and screws. Beneath ...

A comparative study between dexmedetomidine and propofol for maintaining depth of anesthesia in elective craniotomy: a prospective randomized double blind study
Regarding the postoperative care strategies following elective craniotomy procedures there is little evidence. Many neurosurgical departments prefer these patients to remain intubated and sedated for many hours postoperatively to minimize hemodynamic and respiratory distress in fear of early postoperative complications such as rebleeding or seizures. In this prospective observational study the investigators aim to show that early tracheal extubation following elective brain surgery is feasible and safe ...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is known to be associated with negative outcomes and is underdiagnosed. The STOP-Bang questionnaire is a screening tool for OSA that has been validated in both medical and surgical populations. Given that readmission, after surgical intervention is an undesirable event, Caplan et al. sought to investigate, among patients not previously diagnosed with OSA, the capacity of the STOP-Bang questionnaire to predict 30-day readmissions following craniotomy for a supratentorial tumor.. For patients undergoing craniotomy for treatment of a supratentorial neoplasm within a multiple-hospital academic medical center, data were captured in a prospective manner via the Neurosurgery Quality Improvement Initiative (NQII) EpiLog tool. Data were collected over a 1-year period for all supratentorial craniotomy cases. An additional criterion for study inclusion was that the patient was alive at 30 postoperative days. Statistical analysis consisted of simple logistic regression, which ...

A 44-year-old female presented with Duret hemorrhage due to transtentorial herniation by extradural hematoma as a complication after craniotomy for treatment of spontaneous middle cranial fossa cerebrospinal fluid leakage through the oval window. Brain computed tomography revealed linear hemorrhage in the midbrain and the rostral pons. She awoke after 2 weeks in a coma, despite showing ocular bobbing and bilateral intranuclear ophthalmoplegia. She was discharged from the hospital with minimal neurological defects. Duret hemorrhage is usually fatal, but this case shows that early surgical decompression is the most important factor to avoid the worst sequelae.
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to evaluate the technical viability of the unilateral pterional approach to simultaneously treat symmetrical bilateral aneurysm (mirror image) of the middle cerebral arteries (SBAMCA) and to determine the morbidity and mortality rates of this approach. METHODS Forty-six patients with SBAMCA underwent unilateral pterional craniotomy within a period of 9 years. Most patients were women (24, 80.0%) and mean age was 40.7 years. RESULTS Obliteration of the contralateral aneurysm was not possible in 16 patients (34.8%) because of brain edema in 8 patients operated on during the acute phase, lateral projection of the aneurysm in 3, a very long contralateral M1 segment in 4, and the presence of atheromatous plaques at the MCA bifurcation and aneurysm neck in 1. The remaining 30 patients (65.2%) were submitted to the proposed treatment. Final evaluation showed that 26 patients (86.7%) were Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) V, 1 patient (3.3%) was GOS IV, 2 patients (6.6%

Awake craniotomy (AC) is an anesthetic and surgical technique commonly used to resect tumors involving or adjacent to the eloquent or motor cortices, those portions of the brain that are responsible for language and motor skills, respectively. By mapping those areas of the brain that are necessary for such functions, the neurosurgeon is able to avoid resection of cortical tissue that might compromise the patients abilities to speak or move, hence preserving neurologic function. AC is often accomplished by direct cortical stimulation or inhibition, while maintaining the patients ability to interact with the operative team. The anesthetic technique often involves a regional (scalp) block combined with intraoperative intravenous mild sedation. In some reported instances of AC, no cortical mapping is performed, and the technique is performed solely because it is thought that AC leads to a better recovery profile (less pain, better neurologic outcome, and shorter hospital stay) than craniotomy ...
A craniotomy is a procedure in which an opening is made in the skull to access the brain. These openings can range from the size of a dime to a very large portion of the skull. Craniotomies are done for many reasons including providing access for a biopsy of a brain tumor, repairing skull fractures, inserting pressure monitors, removal of a blood clot, removal of bullets, clipping aneurysms or relieving pressure caused by injury or bleeding in the brain. When removing brain tumors, imaging modalities including Stealth MRI is used to map the brain and the diseased tissue targeted for resection. Intra-operative nerve monitoring is also used, if indicated. When the necessary treatments have been completed, the piece of skull is replaced to close the opening ...

Craniotomy: A right-sided craniotomy is typically used (unless the surgeon is left-handed). A rectangular bone flap whose medial edge is the craniums midline is cut. The inferior edge of the craniotomy should be cut as flush as possible with the orbital roof. A bifrontal craniotomy may be useful in some cases. In these cases the superior sagittal sinus and falx should be divided as far anteriorly as possible (28). If the frontal sinus is entered, its mucosa is pushed downward before the internal wall of the sinus is removed, and the sinus should be obliterated during closure. When needed, the orbital roof can be removed by incorporating it into the frontal flap as a single piece (17 ...
A craniotomy is the surgical removal of part of the bone from the skull to expose the brain for surgery. The surgeon uses special tools to remove the section of bone (the bone flap). After the brain surgery, the surgeon replaces the bone flap.
Methods In a blinded clinical trial, 92 patients scheduled for supratentorial craniotomy under general anaesthesia were randomly allocated into either a multipoint TEAS (n=46) or a sham TEAS group (n=46). All patients received total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA) with propofol and sufentanil. The target concentration of sufentanil was adjusted and recorded according to mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR) and bispectral index (BIS). Patients in the TEAS group received TEAS 30 min before anaesthesia induction and this was maintained throughout the operation at four pairs of acupuncture points. Postoperative pain, recovery and side effects were evaluated. ...

Craniotomy and surgical removal of subdural brain hematoma (costs for program #113607) ✔ Asklepios Academic City Hospital Bad Wildungen ✔ Department of Neurosurgery and Spine Surgery ✔ BookingHealth.com
A craniotomy is a type of brain surgery that includes opening the skull, most often to remove a brain tumor. The patients head is shaved for the procedure, and the surgeon cuts out a piece of bone from the skull in order to gain access to the brain. Once all or part of the tumor has been removed, the opening in the skull is covered, typically with the same piece of bone. Wire mesh or screw plates may be used to hold the bone in place, and the skin is closed with either stitches or staples.. If blood or fluid remain in the brain tissue, the surgeon may place a drain through one of the surgical openings. Typically, the drain is only in place for a few days.. ...

Christopher Mealy was an avid cyclist and attorney in Georgetown, Texas, when he started experiencing intermittent paresthesias of his right arm and slowing of his speech. An MRI of the neck did not show any abnormality, but when his paresthesia and speech difficulties continued, he consulted neurosurgeon Dr. Stanley Kim. An MRI of the brain then confirmed a 3.5 centimeter cystic lesion in the left parietotemporal area with numerous satellite lesions.. In September 2011, Dr. Kim performed a left parietal craniotomy and a computer-assisted resection of a malignant tumor using the Stealth Image Guided System. After an acute stay, Mr. Mealy was transferred to St. Davids Rehabilitation at North Austin Medical Center. After surgery, he had right sided weakness, aphasia and visual field defect. He admitted to the rehabilitation program unable to walk and required moderate assistance to transfer from the bed to the chair. He discharged from inpatient rehabilitation after three weeks walking ...

This report describes the anatomy of the frontal branch of the seventh nerve and a technique for assuring its preservation when doing a low frontal approach. By dissecting under both layers of the temporal fascia, rapid and safe access to the inferior fronto-orbital region may be achieved. This technique is recommended for exposure of a bony lesion in the fronto-orbital region and when performing an osteoplastic pterional craniotomy.
The human skull (lat. Cranium) is the bone foundation of the head which is positioned on top of the spine. It forms the basis for the face and protects and covers the brain and sensory organs. Drilling is a type of particle separating process where the tool performs the main motion, rotation, and the shear movement, translational motion, to create burr holes. In cases of brain injuries, the preffered surgical procedure is craniotomy. Craniotomy is one of the oldest types of surgery. It is used in serious brain damage and head trauma, removal of blood clots or hematomas, sampling necessary for cancer screening and removal, and many other uses. Despite the constant development of both the surgeons skills and the development of technology itself, tissue damage is always present. This paper describes the human skull anatomy, devices and tools used in craniotomy and the impact of different drilling parameters during surgery. Ultimately, the paper presents the optimal drilling parameters for skull ...
The primary aim of surgical treatment for falcotentorial meningiomas is gross total excision. The vital surrounding brain structures make this a complex task.. Several surgical approaches have been described to treat falcotentorial meningiomas. These include infratentorial supracerebellar approach, suboccipital approach, occipital transtentorial approach, and combined supratentorial and infratentorial approaches 1) 2) 3).. There are two main issues in treating falcotentorial meningiomas. One is selecting the surgical approach, which includes design of the bone flap. The other main issue is whether main venous structures will be sacrificed for a radical tumor resection.. In all of the cases, Hong et al. tried to make an adequately sized bone flap, even when the tumor was quite large. Some authors have insisted on performing wide craniotomies for large falcotentorial meningiomas 4).. Quiñones-Hinojosa, et al. 5) described a bilateral occipital transtentorial/transfalcine approach for large ...
A craniotomy may be recommended if an abscess does not respond to aspiration or reoccurs at a later date.. During a craniotomy, the surgeon shaves a small section of your hair and removes a small piece of your skull bone (a bone flap) to gain access to your brain.. The abscess is then drained of pus or totally removed. CT-guidance may be used during the operation, to allow the surgeon to more accurately locate the exact position of the abscess.. Once the abscess has been treated, the bone is replaced. The operation usually takes around 3 hours, which includes recovery from general anaesthetic, where youre put to sleep.. ...
During the study period, 258 patients underwent first-time cranioplasties, and 15 (5.8%) of these patients acquired SSIs. Ninety-two patients (35.7%) received intrawound VP (VP group) and 166 (64.3%) did not (no-VP group). Patients in the VP group and the no-VP group were similar with respect to age, sex, smoking history, body mass index, and SSI rates (VP group 6.5%, no-VP group 5.4%, p = 0.72). Patients in the VP group were less likely than those in the no-VP group to have undergone craniectomy for tumors and were more likely to have an American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status score , 2. Intrawound VP was not associated with other postoperative complications. Risk factors for SSI from the bivariable analyses were diabetes (odds ratio [OR] 3.65, 95% CI 1.07-12.44), multiple craniotomy procedures before the cranioplasty (OR 4.39, 95% CI 1.47-13.18), prior same-side craniotomy (OR 4.73, 95% CI 1.57-14.24), and prosthetic implants (OR 4.51, 95% CI 1.40-14.59).

RESULTS: Forty-three patients (64 procedures) were included in the study. Forty-two patients (97.7%) underwent previous craniotomy for indications including intracranial neoplasia (n=32), intracranial hemorrhage (n=5), seizure disorder (n=4), and hydrocephalus (n=1). Average follow-up was 295d (range, 1-1715d; median, 124d). Nine patients (20.9%) required reoperation after their index plastic surgery intervention. Twenty-two patients (51.2%) received 24 prophylactic plastic surgery closures (i.e., in the absence of infection) for indications including previous craniotomy (n=22), XRT (n=19), and prior bevacizumab therapy (n=11). Three patients (13.6%) who underwent prophylactic closure (for indications including previous craniotomy +/- XRT) required further surgical intervention (12.5% of prophylactic procedures). Of note, none of the 11 patients who underwent prophylactic closure for previous craniotomy+neoadjuvant bevacizumab+XRT required repeat intervention. Fourteen patients (32.6%) in this ...

his exhibit depicts a right frontotemporoparietal craniotomy with evacuation of a subdural hematoma. The procedure begins with the creation of a skin flap over the right frontotemporoparietal skull. Next, a craniotomy flap is drilled and removed, exposing the underlying dura. An incision is made in the dura and the subdural hematoma is evacuated with suction. The dura is then closed with sutures and a Jackson-Pratt drain is inserted through a separate stab incision. Lastly, the craniotomy flap is returned to its original position and secured to the skull with plates.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Decompressive craniectomy for space-occupying supratentorial infarction. T2 - rationale, indications, and outcome.. AU - Lanzino, D. J.. AU - Lanzino, G.. PY - 2000. Y1 - 2000. N2 - A subset of patients with ischemic cerebrovascular stroke suffer a progressive deterioration secondary to massive cerebral ischemia, edema, and increased intracranial pressure (ICP). The evolution is often fatal. In these patients, a decompressive craniectomy converts the closed, rigid cranial vault into an open box. The result is a dramatic decrease in ICP and a reversal of the clinical and radiological signs of herniation. For these reasons, decompressive craniectomy has been increasingly proposed as a life-saving measure in patients with large, space-occupying hemispheric infarction. The authors review the rationale, indications, and clinical experience with this procedure, which has been performed in patients who have had supratentorial ischemic stroke.. AB - A subset of patients with ischemic ...

Specific indications and timing for this intervention remain unclear. We present our experience with this procedure in a subset of 18 patients with massive cerebral edema refractory to medical management, treated with decompressive craniectomy over a 3-year period (1997 to 2000). Computerized tomography (CT) scans were independently analyzed by a neuroradiologist blinded to clinical outcome. Eleven male and seven female patients, ages 20 to 69 years (mean ± SEM, 46 ± 14 years), underwent hemicraniectomy for the following diagnoses: 12 hemispheric ...
Objectives: The present study describes our results during the last 10 years (2006-2016) regarding the preservation of the frontotemporal branch (FTB) of the facial nerve during pterional craniotomy in 450 patients using interfascial, subfascial and submuscular dissections.. Methods: We carried out a descriptive and retrospective study of historical cohort. We reviewed all the cases operated on by pterional craniotomy and performed by the same experienced surgeon of our Department of Neurosurgery during the period 2006-2016. For each reported case, we analyzed the type of temporal dissection performed and the existence or not of facial paresis in the post-surgical period as well as its evolution during the follow up at our outpatient clinic.. Results: We recorded 450 clinical cases that respected the study inclusion criteria. Our outcomes demonstrate that submuscular dissection technique presents an ARR in comparison to interfascial dissection technique of 28.88%, 5.55% and 4.44% (for the ...
Cranial defects usually occur after trauma, neurosurgical procedures like decompressive craniotomy, tumour resections, infection and congenital defects. The purpose of cranial vault repair is to protect the underlying brain tissue, to reduce any localized pain and patient anxiety, and improve cranial aesthetics. Cranioplasty is a frequent neurosurgical procedure achieved with the aid of cranial prosthesis made from materials such as: titanium, autologous bone, ceramics and polymers. Prosthesis production is often costly and requires complex intraoperative processes. Implant customized manufacturing for craniopathies allows for a precise and anatomical reconstruction in a shorter operating time compared to other conventional techniques. We present a simple, low-cost method for prosthesis manufacturing that ensures surgical success. Two patients with cranial defects are presented to describe the three-dimensional (3D) printing technique for cranial reconstruction. A digital prosthesis model is designed

The prognosis of complete MCAO is very poor.1 2 3 4 5 6 In the clinical management of patients with MCAO, early thrombolysis proved to be beneficial.13 14 However, thrombolysis increases the risk for intracranial hemorrhage.17 18 Decompressive craniectomy has shown to be a lifesaving procedure for malignant MCA infarction.4 7 8 9 10 This experimental study directly compared the benefits of early reperfusion with those of decompressive craniectomy and evaluated the effects of combined treatment on infarction size and cerebral perfusion. To maximize reperfusion effects, we chose 60 minutes of permanent MCAO. We used DWI and PWI to follow the progression of the ischemic lesion and the perfusion deficit in an animal model of hemispheric stroke.. Reperfusion at 1 hour after MCAO significantly reduced the size of the ischemic lesion compared with animals without treatment. After the suture was withdrawn, the area with a bolus delay ,2 seconds decreased from 50% to 65% to approximately 10% to 20% of ...
Ischemic damage produced in the posterior cerebral territory causes significant morbidity and urgently must be considered if the patient need a surgical attitude. Surgical decompression by suboccipital craniectomy seams to be effective to treat secondary edema due to cerebellar damage or in posterior fossa, when medical treatment is not able to control side effects. We report a clinical case of a patient with a subacute ischemic infarction in the vertebro-basilar territory, with perilesional edema, and a posterior fossa decompressive craniectomy (DC) was carried out.
Inside an operating room at Lexington Medical Center, Karen Adkins had surgery to remove a tumor from her brain - while she was wide awake.. As Johnathan A. Engh, MD, FAANS, of the Lexington Medical Center Brain Tumor Program worked to remove the astrocytoma invading the supportive tissue of her frontal lobe, Karen kept up a lively conversation with one of the nurses in the surgical suite.. She asked me about my brothers and sister, where I grew up and what street I lived on, Karen said. She asked me to blink, move my face and stick out my tongue. We also talked about how we were both redheads.. The procedure Karen was having is called an awake craniotomy, a type of surgery where a piece of the skull is temporarily removed to access the brain and then the patient is woken up during surgery.. When a tumor is near a part of the brain that controls critical functions such as speech, language or movement, an awake craniotomy is beneficial.. While being kept comfortable, the patient can talk, ...
Pediatric patients when undergoing craniotomies and craniofacial surgery may potentially have significant blood loss. The amount and extent will be dictated by the nature of the surgical procedure, the proximity to major blood vessels, and the age, and weight of the patient. The goals should be to maintain hemodynamic stability and oxygen carrying capacity and to prevent and treat hyperfibrinolysis and dilutional coagulopathy. Over transfusion and transfusion-related side effects should be minimized. This article will highlight the pertinent considerations for managing massive blood loss in pediatric patients undergoing craniotomies and craniofacial surgery. North American and European guidelines for intraoperative administration of fluid and blood products will be discussed. ...
Biodegradable beta-tricalcium phosphate disks (TCP) of 2 configurations were inserted into 15mm diameter craniotomy wounds and non-treated control sites were evaluated in 60 rabbits. There were no adverse tissue reactions and no apparent difference in the clinical appearance of the 12 and 24 week implanted disks. By 36 weeks and continuing to 48 weeks, the omnidirectional TCP (OTCP) implants were degrading more rapidly than the unidirectional TCP (UTCP) implants, with degradation progressing centripetally and replacement by woven bone and maturing lamellar bone. Host implant interface of both TCP configurations was a bone bond without interposed soft tissue. TCP disks may be clinically useful for craniotomy repair.

Sinking skin flap syndrome (SSFS) is a complication among long-term survivors of stroke or traumatic brain injury treated by decompressive craniectomy. The syndrome encompasses a wide spectrum of neurological symptoms including cognitive decline, seizures, speech and sensorimotor deficits. Early cranioplasty appears to improve cerebral perfusion, but the efficacy of cranioplasty in neurocognitive outcome in long-standing SSFS patient is unclear. We report a 64-year-old patient who suffered from traumatic brain injury and underwent decompressive craniectomy 18 years ago. She had chronic SSFS with pre-cranioplasty assessments demonstrating severe neurocognitive impairments which were static over time. After cranioplasty with custom-made polyetheretherketone flap to restore the 264 cm 2 skull defect, magnetic resonance perfusion scan with pseudo-continuous arterial spin labelling technique showed a two-fold augmentation of cerebral blood flow in both frontal lobes, as well as areas distal to the ...
FERGUSON: Further comments: Patient Age: Even though among younger patients malignant MCA infarction is more common, overall, ischemic cerebral stroke is a condition of older individuals. More specifically, more than 60% of patients are older than 50 years, and 40% are older than 60 years old (Hacke W et al. Arch Neurol 1996). Despite this, the DECIMAL and DESTINY trials only investigate the benefits of hemicraniectomy in patients younger than age 60. They had a reasonable basis for concentrating on surgical benefit for younger patients. A 2004 meta-analysis by Gupta et al., investigated the predictors of outcome following hemicraniectomy after malignant MCA infarction in138 patients. The authors found that younger age was the only pre-operative clinical determinant of survival with good functional outcome (Gupta et al., Stroke 2004). There are several other studies that come to a similar conclusion (Chen et al., J of Clin Neuroscience 2007; Curry et al., Neurosurgery 2005; Walz et al., J Neurol ...
p=0.02). Bottom line Early cranioplasty didnt raise the an infection price within PIK-293 this scholarly research. The usage of nonmetal allograft components influenced a far more essential role in an infection in cranioplasty. In fact, timing itself had not been a substantial risk element in multivariate evaluation. Therefore the early cranioplasty may provide better outcomes in cognitive wound or functions without increasing chlamydia rate.

It really is associated with extended amount of immobility, pulmonary an infection and thromboembolic occasions. A ...
BACKGROUND: We have reported that a scheduled nonnarcotic analgesic regimen after dorsal lumbar rhizotomy and Chiari I malformation decompression is efficacious in managing postoperative pain in children. To date, this regimen has not been analyzed in children after brain tumor biopsy or resection. OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the safety and utility of such an analgesic protocol in these patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A database review was conducted to identify children who received a scheduled dose of alternating acetaminophen and ibuprofen after craniotomy for tumor biopsy or resection, and postoperative imaging was evaluated. RESULTS: Fifty-one children who met the inclusion criteria were identified. On postoperative imaging, 17.67% had routine, postoperative blood in the resection cavity according to both radiology and neurosurgical review. One patient had moderate postoperative bleeding in the tumor cavity. Overall, 44 of the 51 patients (86.3%) required no or minimal narcotic medication for ...

Ophthalmic segment aneurysms (OSAs) are technically challenging lesions with a wide-neck morphology and proximity to the optic nerve. Revascularization and aneurysm trapping are occasionally needed to manage unclippable OSAs. Microsurgical treatment requires anterior clinoidectomy, optic strut drilling, and proximal/distal dural ring dissection for adequate exposure. This video demonstrates a two-stage revascularization and clip reconstruction of an OSA. A 62-yr-old woman was presented, with acute-onset expressive aphasia, right hemineglect, and hemiparesis. Neuroimaging revealed a partially thrombosed giant OSA measuring 2.5 × 2.3 cm2. Patient consent was obtained for bypassing, trapping, and decompressing the aneurysm. A pterional craniotomy was performed and an external carotid artery - radial artery graft - middle cerebral artery bypass was performed. The aneurysm was proximally occluded with a permanent clip on the clinoidal internal carotid artery (ICA). Adherence of the distal supraclinoid ICA

Because of a suspicion that intraoperative penicillin antibiotics might be causing early postoperative seizures in craniotomy patients, a deliberate effort was initiated in 1987 to avoid these agents in favor of nonpenicillin antibiotics. This permitted a retrospective comparison of the incidence of early postoperative seizures in craniotomy patients who did and who did not receive intraoperative penicillins. Records of patients treated between July 1, 1984, and July 1, 1985, and between July 1, 1987, and July 1, 1988, were reviewed, for a total of 1316 procedures. There were no seizures in the 323 patients who underwent suboccipital craniectomy. However, among the 993 patients receiving supratentorial procedures there were 30 with seizures within the first 6 hours postoperatively, 19 of which were generalized seizures. The incidence of early seizures was 4.7% (20 cases) of the 427 patients given penicillins and only 1.8% (10 cases) of the 566 not given penicillins (p , 0.01). Since patients ...
A nine-year-old greater bamboo lemur (Prolemur simus) was presented for the resection of a 3×2 cm occipital brain tumour. Intracranial surgery has not been previously reported in lemurs. Pain management, maintenance of an adequate perfusion pressure in the CNS, maintenance of autoregulation, provision of neuroprotection and prevention of the complications induced by the surgical technique (positioning, haemorrhage, seizures, etc) are the challenges associated to this surgery in domestic animals. The management of anaesthesia for such a condition in a wild animal is even more challenging. This report illustrates how difficult the management of anaesthesia is in a wild animal undergoing a procedure that requires intensive care and restraint, while published information on anaesthesia and critical care in this species is limited. ...

Once we arrived at the surgery pavilion at the UW, I checked in and we sat for a few moments before I was whisked away to surgery prep. When I changed into the hospital gown, and the assistant shaved the areas of my skull I got even more excited for the next leg of my journey. Next, they placed electrodes (dont know if electrode is the proper term, but Im just going to use it anyway because I think you get my point) around my head and drew circles via marker around each one of them to mark the proper locations for the mapping (thanks for that! It took weeks to remove the permanent marker!). The computer calculates the location of the incision, but the electrodes are placed by hand. Below is a photo of me with the computer electrode thingies all over my head. My pre-op nurse Daisy, was pretty angry at the assistant for doing such a crappy job of shaving my head (you can see in the 2nd photo the shaved hair on my pillow). She basically kicked him out of our room because she knew (I was ...

It was inconceivable during those first weeks, when I was critically ill, that good would come from having a stroke. However, I found out later having a stroke provided new experiences and opportunities. One day, this became very clear to me. Recently, I watched an amazing young woman, my daughter Andrea, speak to a group of nurses about how my stroke affected her life. I was filled with awe and pride at her poise and grace. Four years ago, my stroke rocked her world. I had a hemorrhagic right temporal (part of the brain next to the ear), parietal lobe stroke (largest part of the brain above the ear), followed by a craniotomy. After the stroke, the craniotomy and a broken leg, I doubted I would be able to see Andrea graduate from high school. I spent months receiving intensive rehabilitation. Initially, I could not walk or read. I needed to use a wheelchair at all times. Standing for any length of time seemed impossible.
